Bereavement Support Group for Newly Bereaved Forming

April 3, 2017

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”                        -Matthew 5:4

When someone we love has been taken from us, we often find ourselves dealing with change and transition.  Many offer their help, but do not always understand the loss we are feeling.  Bereavement support groups are one way to find support from others who are going through the same process.  We cannot go around, over or under the grief process.  We need to go through it; we need to be good to ourselves, putting balance into our lives through prayer, reading, resting, relaxation and work.  Grief takes time.  Unrealistic expectations undermine the healing process.

The Parish of St. Luke Church is sponsoring a Bereavement Support Group for the Newly Bereaved.

You need not be a parishioner to attend.

The group will meet on:  Wednesday evenings, 7:00-8:30 pm in the Conference Room (next to the Augustine Room) for 8 consecutive weeks:  June 28-August 16, 2017.

PRE-REGISTRATION is required.

Please call the Bereavement office @ 848-226-6220 and leave a message to register.  We will call you back.
